The concept of ‘winter cities’ speaks to a particular relationship between place and winter. However, winter cities are largely under examined in urban research, particularly Canadian cities. This thesis asks what type of place is a winter city and what types of placemaking occur in this context?...
50,000 years of paleoenvironmental change recorded in meteoric waters and coeval paleoecological and cryostratigraphic indicators from the Klondike goldfields, Yukon, CanadaDownload
A 50,000 year record of meteoric water isotopes (δ2H/δ18O) and paleoenvironmental conditions is presented from syngenetic ice-rich permafrost and macrofossils from eight sites in the Klondike area of central Yukon. Four sedimentary units are recognized based on cryostratigraphy, paleoecological...
This research examines the regional economic resilience of resource-based communities (RBCs) in a Canadian context. The Town of Devon in the province of Alberta, Canada is a case study for this project. The objectives of this study are 1) To develop a conceptual analytic framework to evaluate...
A Combined Membrane Filtration - Aeration Approach for the Treatment of Hydraulic Fracturing - Flowback and Produced Water from the Duvernay FormationDownload
Membrane filtration technologies have been successfully applied for the treatment of many types of wastewater. In hydraulic fracturing operations, membrane processes can be applied as a cost-effective way of removing unwanted substances from flowback and produced water (FPW) and promoting its...
A Fine Detail Physicochemical Depositional Model for Devonian Organic-Rich Mudstones: A Petrographic Study of the Hare Indian and Canol Formations, Central Mackenzie Valley, Northwest TerritoriesDownload
The Hare Indian and Canol Formations, making up part of the Horn River Group in the Northwest Territories, primarily consist of organic-rich mudstones deposited during the Middle to Late Devonian. The formations were previously considered to represent marine basin fill accumulated in an...
A Model for the Solubility of Anhydrite in H2O-NaCl fluids from 25 to 800 °C, 0.1 to 1400 MPa, and 0 to 60 wt% NaCl: Applications to Hydrothermal Ore-forming SystemsDownload
Anhydrite (CaSO4) is a common gangue mineral in hydrothermal ore-forming systems, though currently there is no robust numerical model for the solubility of anhydrite in H2O-NaCl hydrothermal fluids. Here, we present a thermodynamic model for the solubility of anhydrite in saline aqueous fluids...
Quantifying and predicting the dissolution of minerals in complex (multicomponent) aqueous fluids across wide ranges of P-T space is critical for interpreting geologic processes that involve water-rock interactions in the Earth’s crust and upper mantle. Here, we define a new thermodynamic model...
A Multidisciplinary Investigation on the Influence of Archean Seawater Composition and UV radiation levels on the Survival and Evolution of Early MicroorganismsDownload
Life evolved in the oceans nearly four billion years ago, but the environmental conditions surrounding its evolution remains poorly understood. While Archean seawater (2.5 to 3.8 Ga) provided ancient microorganisms with the bioactive trace metals needed to sustain their metabolic requirements, it...
